Quantum computing has the potential to revolutionize the way we solve complex problems in various fields. Its unique features, such as superposition and entanglement, allow for speedup in certain computations compared to classical computers. In this paper, we show that incorporating quantum computing into a heterogeneous computation architecture is possible and potentially can greatly enhance the overall performance and efficiency of solving a wide range of problems. We propose a heterogeneous computation architecture that integrates quantum computing and classical computing. We describe how this architecture can be implemented using widely available opensource software and provide a reference implementation. We also discuss potential benefits and challenges. Our goal is to highlight the importance of seamless inclusion of quantum computing in the future of computation and how it can be achieved with tools we already have.
